Another Hurricane Sandy, or perhaps even a tornado watch? No, today an Amber Alert was issued which simply read "LIC/GEX1377 NY 1995 Tan Lexis".

Apparently a bipolar mother kidnapped her child, and police issued the alert in an attempt to help track her down. Is this the new age of messaging where any law enforcement can spam their special cases all over the region?"
